i'm seriously wanting my nipples pierced and/or my first tattoo... i have a major idea for the tattoo, but i don't know if i want to try to get it done in NC or elsewhere. (i'll be graduating in May and probably leaving the state for a job.) but i'm having surgery soon, so i don't want to get anything done, before or after (during surgery healing). so mid-january, if that, will be the earliest i could do anything... just wanted to rant, thanks OT. i've been wanting the nipple piercings for a while, but i knew this surgery is coming up, and my body's been acting weird, so I didn't want them to get fucked up (not heal properly, etc). i guess i could start physically sketching some things for my tattoo, but idk if i have those skillz... to the baller artists (tattoo and 'regular).
